A year ago, almost to the day, 5 Seconds of Summer were crowned "Worst Band" at the 2015 NME Awards. They were stoked about it: in fact, they asked their fans to vote for them in the category, and so the 5SOSFam obliged. Last night, at the 2016 edition of the same award show, 5SOS took home the same honor.

The band beat One DirectionLittle Mix, Sleaford Mods, U2 and Nickelback for the prestigious prize that was handed out at the O2 Academy Brixton.

It seems like the Aussie lads are just as stoked to win the award a second time. Drummer Ashton Irwin tweeted, "NME worst band 2 years running, we are unstoppable at being the worst."
